Jessica Snowden Clements, 27, passed away with her family at her side at University of Iowa Hospitals on November 26, 2020.
Jessica was born on December 19, 1992, to Scott and Sheila Clements in Panama City, Florida. Jessica grew up in Fairfield, Iowa, with her siblings, Justin and Jennifer. She graduated from Fairfield High School in 2012, where she was part of FFA. Jessica participated in Special Olympics events such as bowling, cycling, golf, track and field, snowshoeing, basketball, and swimming. She also played baseball with Challengers Baseball League.
Jessica enjoyed going to events in the community with the West Side Social Club and with Friends Clubs. Her favorite events were the dances where she could bust a move with her friends. Jessica enjoyed going to Camp Courageous in Monticello, Iowa, and she also liked to create projects in the Open Class at the Jefferson County Fair.
Jessica will be remembered for keeping her family on time and reminding them of everything they might forget, her love of Disney Channel movies and shows, dance parties, her love of food, and her happy place of the beach. Jessica had an one-of-a-kind personality and lit up any room she walked into with just one smile or laugh.
Jessica will forever be missed by her parents, Scott and Sheila, her sister Jennifer Clements (Rocky), her brother Justin Clements (Kristen, Hunter, Jaxson), and grandparents Kay Ehrhardt, Walt Ehrhardt, and Lois Roben. She is also survived by and will be missed by many aunts, uncles, and cousins and by her friends Ross Robinson and Jinni Hanson.
In Heaven, Jessica joins Cleo Clements, Red Harrison, Jim Roben, and her childhood friend Patrick Morton.
